Have you sustained burns through someone else’s fault and need to speak to an injury claims lawyer in Jedburgh?

Burns are a very painful injury, and even a small burn can remain painful for a long time. More serious burns can cause underlying problems, permanent scarring and even death. There are things other than heat that can cause burns, such as:

  • Cold
  • Sunlight
  • Friction
  • Chemicals
  • Radiation
  • Electricity

If any of these things caused you a burn, and it was the fault of some one else, you may be entitled to talk to an injury claims lawyer in Jedburgh.

The classification of burns for your injury claims lawyer in Jedburgh

First, second and third degree burns are the three main categories, and although there are fourth, fifth and sixth categories, you only normally hear those at post mortems because they usually result in death.

  • First degree burns are the mildest of the burns. They do not cause the skin to blister but the burnt area will be painful for quite a while.
  • Second degree burns are more severe and will generally be more painful.  The burns will have blisters covering the affected area.  These blisters are at risk of infection once they have burst.  The body loses fluids through these blisters and if the burns cover a large area, the victim can go into shock due to fluid loss.
  • Third degree burns are the most severe that normally victims can survive, unless they cover a large area, when the patient might not recover.  These burns do a lot of damage, the skin will be completely burned away and damage caused to the muscles, ligaments and tendons underneath.  The nerves will have been destroyed so quite often they are less painful than first and second degree burns.  These burns take a long time to heal and generally leave permanent scarring; skin grafts from unaffected areas may be needed.

There are many ways burns can be caused and they can be particularly painful for children and the elderly, as their skin is more delicate.  Hopefully, you or no one you know will ever sustain such painful injuries, but if you do, through no fault of your own, you should speak to an injury lawyer in Jedburgh.
